La Villa Strangiato Guitar Lesson – Rush

In this La Villa Strangiato guitar lesson video series, I will take you note-for-note through this instrumental masterpiece by Rush.

There are 12 sections total to this epic piece of music, so because of that, I have broken the tutorial up into two separate videos. The first video will cover the entire song minus Alex Lifeson's two guitar solos. In the second video lesson, I will tackle those two solos.

I will call out the minute and second mark as well as the name of each section I am covering during the course of the lesson.

This instrumental starts with a cool flamenco style guitar intro. I will grab my nylon string acoustic for that part of the lesson.

For the rest of the track, I will use my strat and take a look at every section of the song in the order that each appears.

If you ever get this song down in it's entirety, please send me a video link of you playing it. It is quite the accomplishment!
